April's Magnolia card....

Hi everyone.... oooh quite a while since i posted a card so thought i would share this Tilda card i have done this evening, i have used some free papers from Simply cards and paper craft magazine, the colours green and peach was inspired from a blog candy challenge, i must admit i struggled to find peachy tones in the hundreds of paper collections i have so i was thankful for the free gift in the mag....it worked i think....the camera image is a lovely stamp and works very well if you are a magnolia collector,  Edwin also looks fab when used in this image,  i have used  momento dye ink for the stamped images, coloured with pro markers, satin ribbon threaded through the  border trims, flowers handmade...glitz and glitter and pearls ..... hope you like it....back soon bloggers ....X
